5.0 out of 5 stars Useful tool even as a quick reference for those further along than high school/college, June 26, 2012

This review is from: Chemistry for Everyone: A Helpful Primer for High School or College Chemistry (Kindle Edition)
Right just as a disclaimer I am a complete chemistry geek, completed an undergrad in organic/pharmaceutical chemistry, completed a post grad in analytical chemistry and now working in environmental chemistry. I was flicking through different books on offer on Amazon a while back and as this was free I decided to pick it up, if it wouldn't suit me, it could suit my mum, (a high school chemistry teacher).
The book is split into a series of manageable chunks, at the start of each there is a flow chart showing how this section is relevant to the over all picture and the end of each chapter has a series of review questions. Instead of bulking up this review with a run through of each chapter I'll add that on as a comment

The chapters after the introduction are
1) The atom and the periodic table - good diagrams, copy of the periodic table
2) Scientific notation - useful quick run through
3) Using your calculator - only issue was I've used different calculators over the course of my science career and the different makes seem to like to move some of the function buttons around!
4) Significant Figures - if only some of my students had read this chapter!!
5) The mole and molarity
6) Units and conversions - I know of plenty of websites that can do these, however unless things have changed since I was in college google wasn't allowed during exams! They give you fool proof methods, and make you do it the old fashioned way of units, units, units! 
7) Acidity and Basicity
8) The Ideal Gas Law - broken down into each of the main elements of this law, which can be very useful for anyone that has issues isolating any one element.
9) Solubility - explains ` like dissolves like' very simply
10) Bonding - one of the areas I was never overly fond of, but runs through not only various bond types but dot and cross diagrams
11) Chemical Reactions - where it all ties in together and shows how fun chemistry can be!
